Man charged with 12 Sierra Vista burglaries

Posted: Updated:

A man was indicted on July 31 for 10 burglaries in the Sierra Vista area, bringing the total number of burglaries he is charged with to 12. Sierra Vista Police say Ronald Syphurs committed the crimes between August of 2007 and February of 2008, to support his drug habit.

Syphurs was originally arrested in March on drug charges, and since that time had been indicted for two burglaries prior to the July 31 indictment. Investigators say DNA evidence connected Syphurs to 11 of the 12 burglaries, and fingerprint evidence tied him to the other.
